(Friday, June 7, 2019) – The next bi-weekly larvicide treatment will take place on Friday, June 21 between the hours of 1:00 am – 5:00 am.
(Monday, May 20, 2019) – Miami-Dade Mosquito Control will begin conducting proactive, bi-weekly larvicide treatments on Friday, June 7 throughout Sunny Isles Beach. At this time, the treatments are not in response to any immediate threat of mosquito-borne disease. The larvicide, VectoBac WG, will be sprayed between the hours of 1:00 and 5:00 am. This treatment is a safe, organic material, and one of the first bacterial larvicides to complete the World Health Organization Pesticide Evaluation Scheme. The EPA has determined VectoBac has no toxicity to people; it can be applied safely to mosquito habitat without a detrimental impact on food, crops or water supplies. While this treatment is safe, pets and humans should remain indoors when the trucks are in your area, as they will pass quickly and the treatment will settle.
